Diablo 2 beta of LoD (pre 1.07)
« on: September 05, 2017, 07:02:55 PM »
Is anyone else apart from DT interested in this?  Think of it basically like 1.07 with some differences and bugs.  Probably some better things that didn't hit 1.07.

Something none of us ever got a chance to play it.  It was on bnet only, sent to a handful and up for a short time.

Yes... but that doesn't really answer the question. Is this something you now have access to or something?

Also, wasn't there rumor going around that Blizzard was making a D2 remaster?

was in a rush to get to bed last night. 

There were two issues in the past
1) Only so many cds existed.  However some had shared the ISO online
2) It was designed to be bnet only.  Bnet hasn't supported that for 16 years so a guy had to reverse engineer to get it SP working.

So now myself, and a few others have access to it. I haven't started playing yet but others have and are having some fun.

D2 Remaster.  Maybe .. as you mention there is stuff on a rumour mill.  We have seen the Starcraft one actually happen.  Job posting sound like it MIGHT happen.  Lets wait 3 years and get disappointed no matter what they do :P ;)

I've been playing 1.07 (made it to Hell with a FO Sorc), and I'd be interested in this.  There doesn't seem to be much talk at the SPF - could you PM me info about the game / folk that are playing?

Can we get a list of all the changes or differences in the 1.07 beta? I'd be interested it toying around with this.

I was playing 1.00 for a while and it was great, would be good to give something else a blast.

Yeah 1.00 is fun, definitely a good break from the modern game. I am in the process of slapping together the changes. It's pretty big, although subtle in a way. Will keep you guys updated.
